31 Weeks

As of yesterday, we are 31weeks pregnant! Every week is such a milestone now. It's crazy to think I've been on bedrest for 10 weeks! That's 2 and a half months. 10 weeks ago we were petrified, facing the very realistic thought that we could lose the babies we fought so long and so hard to have.

Today I had two doctor appointments. The first was at the high-risk specialist MFM Clinic. There are a group of doctors who rotate every four weeks, and today happened to be my favorite. As soon as he came into the room he exclaimed "look at that beautiful belly! Now that's what I like to see!" I hadn't seen him since I was 22 weeks. His bedside manner is amazing and he made me feel so much more comfortable about everything. My cervix is holding strong around 1.5 which is great for me in general. It's not bad either for someone carrying twins at this point. He said I do not have to go back weekly for cervical lengths anymore, because Dr. W can check me digitally from now on. I don't know if that's something to be excited about considering how bad it hurt last week, but I will take it. Now I will go every three weeks for growth scans to the MFM clinic.

I also visited Dr. W's office although I had to see her partner. It was a quick appointment and I basically moaned about how miserable I am. We talked about some pain relief options and also helping me sleep. Now I will see Dr. W weekly and also have weekly biophysical profiles and non-stress tests. This is typical for a twin pregnancy.

I'm hoping that the rest of my appoinents are as non-eventful as today, and that these babies decide to hang out inside mom for a few more weeks. However, I'm right around the corner from 32 which is a magic number, and I know that this is all in the Lord's hands. He knows exactly when these babies will make their debut.

I will leave with a picture from today. Not
A belly shot :) I laid back in the car while my sweet Mom ran my errands and returned a TON of things to Target for me.

PS - still rocking the maternity jeans I bought around 18 weeks. That secret fit panel ain't much of a secret anymore though ;-)
